I printed off the application tonight. Seems like a good group to support. It is sad there are no trails in the southern half of the state. We may end up in Ohio for some weekends. Maumee state forest in Ohio is closer than the areas in northern Michigan.I have not ridden these trails but, try Leota,Huron,Leetsville or Missaukee #2. In the Great Lakes Trailrider january '08 issue these are listed in the trail directory as having a lower difficulty rating.Good luck, hope this helps.Join the CCC and keep riding.
